26th March 2008 – Pectel (Wales) Limited, a division of The Pectel Group, one of the largest asbestos removal companies in the UK have been awarded an Exeter City Council “Premier Green" Accreditation.
At the end of 2007 the Exeter Green Accord was launched and seeks a commitment from companies that supply to the Council, to reduce the environmental impact of all their actions and functions for the long term benefit of Exeter City Council.
The Premier Green accreditation is the highest level available to companies and was awarded to Pectel (Wales) Ltd one of the largest Pectel regional offices for successfully completing the Exeter Green Accord Self Assessment.
Steve Haim, Group Quality, Health & Environmental Director said "We are very proud of our Welsh division and their commitment to the environment is echoed throughout the entire group through various internal and external initiatives throughout 2008 and beyond."
The Pectel Group already operates an environmental management system accredited by the British Standard Institution to BS EN ISO 14001 and were also awarded a Green Apple National Gold award in 2007.
Originally formed in 1982, Pectel has prospered over the past three decades, becoming a universally respected pioneer in the Asbestos Removal and Construction Industry.
Aside from our unequalled attention to safety, quality and environmental issues (certified to ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:1999), this impressive reputation is largely a consequence of our unique ability to address all of our clients' requirements with our ‘One Stop Shop' service.
Pectel have worked in virtually every conceivable type of location - from the Houses of Parliament to television studios, from universities to military bases, from housing estates to historic buildings, as well as their important role of disaster management after the tube bombings of 2005
